Things To Do in Kerry

Golfing 

Tralee Golf Course 
Located on sandy seaside turf, this is a rose of a course offering sweeping views of oceans and mountains. 

Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club 
Famed for its spectacular scenery, its VIP playing guest list and the intoxicating hospitality of the Kerry people, the Ring of Kerry Golf and Country Club has now established itself as the "must play" course of any golfer visiting Ireland's south west. 

Dingle Golf Links, Ceann Sibeal 
Championship Links. Each hole on this magnificent links is carved from the natural landscape of one of the most unspoiled parts of Europe, with hazards laid down long before the game of golf was dreamt of, including a winding "burn" that twists and turns through the entire course. 

Dooks Golf Links 
For the golfer who is seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment to enjoy good golf. Dooks presents a convincing case. 

Castle Island Golf Club 
A new parkland course, built on 200 acres, with modern sand-based greens and tees. This excellent course is built to the highest championship standards, which allows the course to be played throughout the year. 

Killarney Golf & Fishing Club 
Nestled amongst the splendour of the famous lakes of Killarney and with the spectacular backdrop of the MacGillycuddy Reeks, Ireland's highest mountain range, lies three unique Lakeside Courses to challenge you. 

Walking 
Tralee’s Town Park covering some 80 acres and located in the heart of the town provides a quiet haven which allows resident and visitor alike to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Its Rose Garden with its many unique varieties receives widespread acclaim. The Park also contains a modern children’s playground and pets corner. 

Slí na Sláinte 
Slí na Sláinte is a health promotion initiative aimed at encouraging people of all ages and abilities to walk for pleasure and good health. Since its introduction by the Irish Heart Foundation in 1996, Sli has grown to include a network of almost 140 walking routes around the country. These are marked by bright colourful poles at Km intervals. 

The North Kerry Way 
-"Slí Chiarraí Thuaidh" in Irish - is one of Ireland's long-distance pathways approved by the National Waymarked Ways Committee. Its total length is 48 km (near enough to 29 miles). Average walkers should find little difficulty in completing it in two days, but it can be broken up into shorter stages. 

The Dingle Way 
This walk completes a circuit of the Dingle Peninsula, starting and finishing in the capital of Kerry - Tralee. The trail is 179km long and takes an adult who is reasonably fit an average of 8-9 days to walk. 

Beaches 
Nature has blessed Kerry with a wonderful number and variety of beaches, several of them just a short drive from Tralee. The vast expanses of Banna to the north and Derrymore to the west are hugely popular. Likewise Ballybunion and Maherees, where the delights of sea and sand are augmented by a diversity of entertainments and seasports. 

The bonus is that many of the county’s beaches have safety and cleanliness endorsement in the form of European Flags. The County Council has worked hard to secure those flags. Among other things, they have installed resident lifeguards at Maherees, Banna, Derrynane, Ventry, Inch, Ballybunion North and South, Ballyheigue, Fenit, Ballinskelligs, White Strand (Cahirciveen) and Rossbeigh. Understandably, the Council is proud that Kerry has more Blue Flags (14) than any other county. Note, by the way, that Fenit Marina also boasts a Blue Flag and is one of only four marinas in Ireland with the distinction. 

Boating & Angling 
A new 100-berth marina facility has been developed at Fenit, just 8 miles from Tralee. Fenit is also the home of Tralee Sailing Club and Tralee & Fenit Sea Angling Club both of whom have developed extensive clubhouse facilities.
